New fire truck for Hicks Bay

A fire truck with a special meaning will be presented to the Hicks Bay community this month.    It will be handed over at Hicks Bay on April 28 in a ceremony that will be attended by local and national dignitaries.

The new vehicle replaces the one in which firefighter and community leader Ray Barrett lost his life on December 27, 2008 and his son Tahi was seriously injured.  To read the full Gisborne Hearld story (external link)
